It called for the creation of a conducive environment in Myanmar’s Rakhine for repatriation, as well as ensuring justice and accountability for the persecuted Rohingya people. While there were divergences among UN member states regarding the resolution, it praised Bangladesh for providing temporary shelter to the displaced Rohingyas and expressed concern over their increasing frustration. The resolution also emphasized the importance of international cooperation and accountability for atrocities committed against the Rohingyas, supporting the ongoing judicial processes at the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice.
